SOURCE: Changing Sony Vaio BIOS

you should be able to exit and save changes, which my guess is you are exiting without saving the changes. theres is a way around this, by pressing either F8, F9, F10, or F12 to access the boot menu, and then you can boot from cd to install your linux operating system

To load the bios, you have to do this during computer startup on the first display message. It's usually pressing F8 while your computer is booting. If you get to the OS loading screen then you have to try it again :o

It should list an entry of possible keys during startup, it's pretty much usually contained within the F keys.

I hope this helps :)

Should be the F2 key to enter setup. Make sure you are pressing this key during the VAIO spash screen on boot. If you press it after the spash screen the bois will not load and you will have to power cycle the computer to get the spash sreen back and try again.

Ran out of disk space on my Vaio desktop PCV-RZ24G. 120 gig drive but c formatted to 19 gig. purchased a WD 250 gig and did a disk clone. installed in pc and at first power on it stops at no boot device...


This is what I disliked about the "Sony hard drive partitioning plan" - they don't give you all of the C partition and then you run out of space. Out of frustration, I formatted the entire hard drive so that no remnants of Sony was in it and installed a fresh copy of the operating system, used the product key from the original operating system, sticker (label) affixed on the case to active Windows again. I got the entire C partition all to myself! Since you cloned that hard drive, you still have the "Sony hard drive partitioning plan".
